When it comes to health, you’d think London would be leading the pack with its extensive amount of spas, gyms and health-centric eateries. But, according to a new list, no UK city even makes the top 10.
TravelSupermarket has just revealed its list of the world’s healthiest cities, taking into account the number of spas, fitness centres, gyms, yoga studios, pilates studios and parks they have, along with restaurants with vegan options, health food shops, the city’s average daylight hours and how much it costs to stay for a night.
All of these things considered, the site revealed Paris to be the world’s healthiest city, followed by Chiang Mai in Thailand and Spain’s Barcelona.
Below are the top 10 healthiest cities in the world:
1. Paris, France
2. Chiang Mai, Thailand
3. Barcelona, Spain
4. Pattaya, Thailand
5. Vancouver, Canada
6. Miami, USA
7. San Francisco, USA
8. Lisbon, Portugal
9. Denpasar, Indonesia
10. Buenos Aires, Argentina
The French capital boasts an impressive 1,305 vegan restaurants, 894 spas and 139 parks – housing the largest number of healthy lifestyle facilities per square kilometre.
Chiang Mai, with its seven spas per square kilometre, earned second place while Barcelona’s large number of spas, yoga and pilates studios won the bronze.
